Demolition is progressing at 23 Hanover Place, the site of a 29-story residential tower in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by INC Architecture & Design and developed by Aview Equities, the 463-foot-tall structure will yield 70,734 square feet with 43 units and 1,727 square feet of commercial space. The property is located at the corner of Livingston Street and Hanover Place.
Recent photos show the former low-rise building reduced to just the ground floor, and we should expect the structure to be fully razed before the end of spring.
23 Hanover Place is one of several parcels on the trapezoidal city block that is being transformed into larger properties. Only a handful of old structures remain, and could likely follow suit in the coming years.
Below is what the property used to look like.
Below are a set of new exterior and interior renderings for 23 Hanover Place that give us a glimpse at what to expect. The 29-story height will be clad in a dark and sleek facade and feature a stack of numerous balconies of varying widths and depths with curbed corners, while the core of the building runs down the centerline on the southern elevation and is defined by two prominent shear walls that surround what appears to be an exterior elevator shaft that will be visible from the street. The homes are to be lined with floor-to-ceiling glass for optimal daylight exposure and the entrance to sit along Hanover Place in the one-story podium that shows a landscaped terrace on top.
Although this is surpassed by newly constructed mammoths such as The Brooklyn Tower at 9 DeKalb Avenue, 589 Fulton Street, and The Paxton at 540 Fulton Street, it will still contribute to the growing vertical density of the booming Downtown Brooklyn district. The nearest subways are the 2 and 3 trains at the Nevins Street station and the B, Q, and R trains at the DeKalb Street station.
A completion date for 23 Hanover Place remains unannounced, but YIMBY will keep an eye out as work unfolds.
